of the debt ceiling. >> the debt ceiling, that even -- that makes me nervous. i'm twitching when i heard the words debt ceiling. stephen, do we think there's any more chance they're moving to at least some kinds of consensus of how we'll run the nation's books before we get to the debt ceiling? >> i'm not sure we are, actually. i think this budget was an ideological document -- >> aren't they all? wait, isn't that what it is, the president's mission statement, right? >> of course it is. no doubt about it. this is the president's statement. i worked for ronald reagan when we put our budgets. it's a statement of principle. the point i'm making is there's not a lot in here republicans are going to go say, oh, wonderful idea. we haven't talked about the new taxes which republicans will reject out of hand. the most interesting thing that happened this week when the president proposed what i think is a fairly modest change to social security, oh, my gosh, these organizations on the left, i mean, had cardiac arrest. and that makes me somewhat nervous about whether we're ever going to get seriou
have the debt ceiling once again. the prospect that the united states could default on its, to its creditors. the debt ceiling needs to be raised this summer. and nobody really can tell me how that isoing to happen. here at the white house the expectation is that republicans will simply cave on this. like they caved earlier in the year giving a temporary increase. republicans say there is no way that can happen. even if john boehner wanted to cave on this, he couldn't pass an extension of the debt ceiling on its own in the house without something else. so really, charlie, when we get to this, the question is, you know, does that become the final opportunity to have something that looks a little bit like the grand bargain. or at least as carney at one point called it, the pe at this time bargain. but some kind of an agreement that does do something on entitlements an something on taxes. >> rose: does the president get some credit and also some achievements from all the meetings he is having with republicans and with senators? >> i think he does. and maybe the biggest indication of t

to be confronted in the next weeks and months as you and the chairman pointed out is the debt ceiling. i hope we have all learned from our experience in the summer of 2011 that it is irresponsible and reckless for the united states to suggest that it will not meet its financial obligations. the there's bondholders, social security recipients, due to other people have contracted with the united states government. in the house in the next couple weeks, we are expected to take up a bill that says, you know what, we can prioritize their deaths. based on that book take on first, but other debts and obligations including this congress have taken on, they don't have as high a priority. could you, mr. secretary, secretary of the treasury comment on what impact it would have on our economy and the signal is sent to the international communist united states were to default on any of its obligations? >> congressman, that notion you prayer a case which is the obligation congress authors should be paid is one that just doesn't work. hhs would obligation your defaulted non. we have never in the history defaul

to have runs. fourth him of the debt ceiling was going to derail our economy for certain, even if we manage to solve the fiscal cliff and the sequester lurked ominously. no matter what deal the politicians made. these would have course throw us off track and cause much higher unemployment. finally, four months ago, fourth quarter earnings, the reports were right around the corner and they were supposed to be, yes, nothing to write home about, or maybe worse, particularly the worldwide slowdown that europe seemed to be mandating, we could have huge downside surprises and the last time we had some pre-announcements -- wait a second. what actually happened? how about we had the best first quarter in 15 years. how is that possible? i think it's because the market has changed its animals. i'm not kidding. investors stopped being scared of washington or europe or earnings shortfalls and they decided to embrace the future, not spurn it. they became like ulysses and his crew, strapped to the mast, oblivious to the sell, sell, sell sirens of the saturnine set. where is sappho when you need h

will not negotiate around the debt ceiling. you for your testimony to date. i want to spend some time talking about the presidential proposal. on this question of debt and how we are right, is it fair to say that the 2001 bush tax cuts but was not paid for at the time by this congress added to this country's debt burden? >> there were two wars that will were not paid for. >> as a result of the collapse, andook a $22 trillion hits necessitated a substantial bailouts by this institution. both of which added to our debt burden. is that correct? to the fourates were looking plans that you it does seem to me to be forward-looking plan despite suggestions to the contrary. we are in a very peculiar situation as it relates to our recovery under the administration. it has 6 million private sector jobs that have been created. we have corporate profits at a double high. we have saw market at near all- time highs. the productivity of an american worker is at an all-time high. highloyment remains itself. we have somet economic indicators that seem to suggest we're doing well but others suggest we have a ways to
lawmakers will square off on whether to raise the debt ceiling. at the recent clinton global initiative, the president recognized students from the university of virginia who won the top prize for their efforts in educating peers about the debt. >> i'm grateful for the passion many students has shown for this issue. they are creative in the competition. they made youtube videos and held social media contests. >> let's bring in team leader one of the five students who spearheaded the projects. good morning. congratulations. >> thank you, chris. >> so you won the top prize. you got to meet with president clinton. not bad. tell us about your project. >> sounds great. so the campaign was focused on getting students involved in the conversation and making sure that they're active in the learning process before we graduate and before we become representatives in any way or become leaders in our respective fields. our campaign focused on 31 initiatives that got students united with their community members and their representatives. we hosted senator mark warner to connect our representatives w
to have another crisis, a debt ceiling crisis, because if the president thinks the republicans are going to go along with this, if they are going to go along with other sorts of tax increases, big tax increases for minor entitlement cuts, that's not going to happen. i mean, as we were saying before, it's the sequester, the spending austerity, the right kind of austerity, that is helping this economy right now. balanced off by the fed. we're not going to get rid that have and replace it with tax hikes. >> dave drucker, the gop wants to win in 2014, i get that, but if the gop becomes democrats, i don't think they are going to win in 2014. >> well, larry, i think everybody should disabuse themselves of the fact that the republicans are going to sign on to the obama budget in any form as it's presented today, and that they are going to support tax increases of any kind, and if the president thinks that the fiscal cliff deal is a way forward for him to cut more deal with the republicans he's going to be disappointed. not only is it bad for them politically, they simply don't believe in it and
to unfold and as the debt ceiling once again approaches. indeed, it was made all the more worrisome by the house republican hearing yesterday that focus on the debt ceiling in terms of the possibility of prioritizing our obligations, obligations all emanating from congressional actions. we cannot continue on this dangerous path. hopefully this hearing will serve a constructive opportunity to embrace a different path. i yield back. >> thank you very much, mr. levitt. again, it's my pleasure to welcome secretary jack lew back to the committee on ways and means. we look forward to your testimony. the committee has received your written statement. it will be made a part of the formal record. secretary lew, you're recognized for five minutes. >> thank you, mr. chairman, and thank you, mr. chairman, ranking member levin, for your gracious welcome here today. it's an honor to appear and to visit the president's budget for next year. and i sit here as the chairman noted, surrounded by four decades of memories of many important occasions. when bipartisan cooperation has moved the country for

a number of the banks. whether it be concerns about the budget or the debt ceiling, it's one of these issues. >> and all of these come as the banks are performing very well. if you want to know whether they are safer, if they are better businesses compared to a year ago, that's another question, right, mary? >> take a look at the revenue. a number of banks would argue, yes, we are safer. but as far as revenue goes, this is speaks to how the businesses are performing. really the growth on the revenue front isn't there. it's either down or very slight increases in revenue growth. you are seeing improvement in profitability as these companies continue to cut costs. they're being very, very aggressive on expense management. and that's helping to drive the bottom line. >> let's get to ww gragranger. this is a big move in today's session. >> there was a company in the machinery and repair business, a good window into the industrial businesses, $240 stock, which is a big stock that people tend not to talk about. they miss sales estimates. sales continue to grow. interesting. they bl
by the amount raised the debt ceiling, 2.1 cheyenne. 1.1 trillion was sequestered. if the agreement was not reached by the committee in the committee did not reach an agreement, there is no provision in the budget control act agreement to raise taxes. the president did raise taxes $600 billion, there was never an agreement to raise taxes. so that's where we've got a loggerhead. this is the problem. at the end of debate i remember when the president guaranteed the american people sequester wouldn't happen. but it is happening. it's happening right now in the law. the house has proposed a budget that eliminates cuts on the defense department, besides other cuts to replace them when. the president is saying he wants to eliminate the sequester are apparently indicates he does, but he wants to do it raising taxes and that is a nonstarter. under our current day, we increase spending every year. the difficulty is that pointed out before our committee so many times is half the reductions in spending and sequester file on the defense department come which only make ucmj six of the spending i
're going to get a public policy flare-up like we had in '10 or '11 during the debt ceiling debate or what happened during the whole election process which so influenced business confidence a year ago. so those two factors are better than they were each of the last three years. the growth piece is similar. on balance we think that adds up to something less than those prior three-year corrections. but close to at least last year's. >> there are some interesting calls in that analysis. barry, thank you very much for your time. barry knapp there at barclays. >>> switching gears a bit from the broader markets to technology, specifically apple and its slide back below $400 today. does the news out of verizon offset all the bad news we got from supplier cirrus yesterday. dan niles, is the cio of alpha one capital, he's been negative on apple shares for six to nine months or so. joins us on the news line today. dan, welcome back. >> thanks, carl. nice to be on. >> does any of the activations of the iphone out of verizon negate or offset what spooked us from cirrus yesterday? >> not at all. verizo
